  • [quote='saishuu','index.php?page=Thread&postID=362604#post362604'][size=10]Not sure if it's been posted before, but Gabiru (aka the other Gabi Guimarães) is officially switching from OH to L full-time and will replace Fabi in Sesc-Rio. Natália (OH) in Minas is now official. SourceThis is heartbreaking for me coz I really want to see the Natalia - Gabi duo again but good for her. It seems like Minas and Praia will be the contender once again. Their team is now seems stronger on paper compare to this season.

  • please see this post

  • Because I wish I didn't have to explain this again.


    Gabi and Natália WILL play together this season. Both are moving to Minas.
    Gabiru is the other Gabi who will play as libero in Sesc-Rio.

    Top player from NCAA. She is both MB and OPP. Black girl, very powerful, high jump. She needs to improve her technical skills, but she's already a NT player. She won the bronze medal the the 2016 Panamerican Cup. A bit unstable on the long run. Brazil is a good place to start a pro career, expecially is a club that works very well with young players, making them ready for the stronger teams of the league.

    Praia is not messinga round this time. Having Carli & Fawcett on the same team is going to be a major advantage. With Carli moving, it is more and more clear that Dani Lins is going to play with Barueri. Dani Lins, Thaisa, Jaque = Coach Ze's babies.

  • Thanks!

    Top player of NCAA is hardly the description for her. Sure she has brilliant moment but she is super inconsistent. I just hope with proper training it will be corrected especially her form.

    Dani Lins indeed signed with Barueri. Well, actually she couldn't sign with Praia because they already have two top players (Fabiana and Fe Garay), which is the maximum limit.
